Tool time with Terence.

I’ll give Urban Meyer credit for one thing.  He’s smart enough not to get baited by the AJ-C’s Terence Moore.

… You had to ask the Big Gator about what nearly was the Big Brawl last October between his Florida team and the victorious one from Athens.

Meyer said, “It wasn’t a brawl.” Then he paused, before adding after he flashed a smile, “It was … I don’t know what you would call it.”

Moore wouldn’t take the hint.  First, a bit of revisionist history:

… You would call it a classless move by normally classy Mark Richt, the Georgia coach. With his Bulldogs having dropped 15 of their previous 17 games against Florida, he decided they needed additional motivation. That’s why, after Georgia scored first in the game, he ordered his players to rush into the end zone and act crazy enough to get an unsportsmanlike penalty.

One, two, and then a slew of Gators threatened to leave their sideline to charge the massive Dog Pile, but Meyer kept pulling them back.

Not exactly.

Moore’s not satisfied.  But Meyer won’t give him much.

… Will Meyer be as kind this year when the two teams meet in Jacksonville, with Georgia supposedly chasing a national championship and with Florida likely seeking revenge for the near-brawl, or whatever you call it? “Well, it’s not like we’re in a conference where you just have one game to play,” Meyer said. “We’ve got Tennessee. We’ve got Miami. We’ve got LSU. We’ve got Arkansas. We’ve got South Carolina. We’ll be ready to go for that [Georgia] game, though, but I’m not worried about that now. I’m not having my team worry about that game now.”

Sounds like Moore will be severely disappointed if a Gator or two doesn’t engage in some physical retribution this year.

    I read this article early this morning while at the dawgbone and about lost my breakfast. Terrance Moore is yet another Tech fan living vicariously through UF. I mean, what’s the story here? Myer’s at a Braves game after visiting GT with his daughter. Where does the celebration come into play in this scenario? What a unit!

    Lastly when did Miami join the SEC? “Well, it’s not like we’re in a conference where you just have one game to play,” Meyer said. “We’ve got Tennessee. We’ve got Miami….”

    At what point did Urbs pull back “One, two, and then a slew of Gators”? All I remember him doing was sitting there stunned that he didn’t think of it first and then trying to fire his own team up “We’ve got spirit, yes we do!” style. Not to mention Tebow bouncing around on one leg looking like a moron trying to fire the crowd up.

  3. Let it go, Terence, let it go.

  4. When The Celebration happened, Meyer sorta stood there in disbelief, then rallied his players and yelled some motivational things at them. That was about it. It’s on the footage. The footage is everywhere.

    So when Terence says this:

    One, two, and then a slew of Gators threatened to leave their sideline to charge the massive Dog Pile, but Meyer kept pulling them back.

    He’s…well, lying. In decent journalism quarters, that’d be worth a suspension of some sort. Sadly…

    The solution is very simple. Stop reading Terrance Moore.
